New Raspberry Glo / Back Swan Speed Shorts and More

Lots of photos of the Split Set pant posted today. This is the Black Swan version shown with a Tender Violet Devotion LS.









More Split Set in all three colors - black, black swan, and alberta lake.


New two-tone Raspberry Glo (front) /Black Swan (back) Speed Shorts.  (Thanks to Ms. T. for the photo.)

Interesting new orange Bangbuster spotted in Australia. (Thanks to Ms. M. for the photo.)




More photos of the U-Turn Pullover. It's supposed to be reversible but I haven't run across a photo showing the other side.

The new luon light Black Macro Micro Power Y looks a lot like last year's regular luon Macro Micro Power Y:

Last year's regular luon Power Y
I think the difference is that the luon light version has solid black along the neckline in front and the older version has the striped pattern. Keep this in mind if you ever hunt this Power Y down on eBay or the sale boards.


Make It Rain Gaiters

 The Creamsicle Pop Scuba Stretch really stands out.


 The pretty Alberta Lake Rose Herringbone Free to Be bra under the Heart Opener Tank.


 Pull Me Over Hoodie photos.

The new Savasana socks with a Polar Cream Define and Free to Be Tank.

The back of those speeds are so cute, WHY did they color block and make the front different???? It ruins them IMO. I don't want my butt two different colors like that!

I think that Bangbuster might be Love Red.

Has anyone tried the split set pants on? They almost look too short in some of the pics and I am 6'1. Any chance they'd be long enough?

Love the two tone speeds! Must have. So different and fun.

Ah wow, ugliness! Split Set Pant so hideous with the back pockets. I only run in Speed Shorts but what's with the two tone BS on back and pink in front? Terrible! U Turn pullover in that color combo, easy pass. Most hideous thing ever is the Pull Me Over Hoodie. 1980 called and it wants its sweatshirt back. Last pics, unfortunately that polar cream define and free to be tank are far too tight on the person...all the pulling, puckering, rolls.

If LLL continues on the ugly path then bye bye LLL.

I wish they would make more PLAIN bright colored regular speed shorts (NOT bonded!!!)... like the ray ones! My absolute faves! Just not a fan of all dark trims etc :(

The flash and coal shorts looked amazing! But i have to admit the others look a little odd.

I REALLY likded the split set pants from the front but from behind it was all bad news. The lines were all wrong and the thighs werent tight enough... but not enough to size down... i swear my butt isnt sooo wide that the lines/seams on these pants were going to be an obvious problem. I don't remember how long they were.

I tried the clear as mud pants as well today and if you live in a climate where it will go below freezing for more than 8 weeks they will be awesome as your base layer. Warm and fuzzy! I have these other run pants from last year that are in excellent condition so i had to pass :-(

Its killing me to see the gaiters when they are already sold out! I wonder if they will come in different colors...loving the swiftly raspberry glow and grey combo! This might become my first swiftly :)

To the woman who asked about the length of the Split Set pants - I don't think they're going to be long enough for you. I'm 5'7, size 4 and the length was just right on me - but just barely.

I really like these pants. So sick of the flared grooves - they're starting to feel dated. Split Set are a fresh updated look -slim and narrow - so flattering and slimming. Thought the pocket would bother me but it's subtle and gives your booty a nice lift. Not for everybody or every body type though...

My first thought upon seeing those speed shorts was "must have" but now I am thinking about what tank I would wear with them......

I tried on the split set pant last night and they made my butt look amazing. I don't need another pair of "out & about pants" but I might have to get them.

I'm not a fan of all this color blocking lulu is into lately. Hasn't been in style since the 90's, and I have no interest in a revival (much like the attempted "comeback" of flare jeans last year... no thanks!) Lots of these items would be much nicer in ONE color!
(PS- on about attempt 8 to prove I'm not a robot... couldn't these be a little less impossible to read? Kind of a deterrent from commenting)

The Speed Shorts in Black Swan/Raspberry Glow are just one more example of how LLL is using leftover fabric scraps to piece together inferior items in a shoddy fashion. Where are the old staple designs? CRB's, Power Y's, the old Scoop Neck, etcetera and so on. The gusset design is inferior and now uses less fabric. The Daily Tanks, Power Y's, WU's and more are sheer which translates into less costly fabric. The Scuba's are shorter, as are the Speed Shorts, and where are the Stride and In Stride Jackets that are so popular? There are no more monthly color palettes, yet the 2-week industry worst return policy does not change. Why were some popular colors "brought back" in limited designs? Leftover fabric discovered at the warehouse perhaps? Color bleeding issues in MULTIPLE colors, not just in Paris Pink as the LLL CEO has repeatedly declared. Poor fit in many designs, even ones that used to fit properly. LLL is a rapidly sinking ship under Captain aka CEO Christine Day. A modern day Titanic, if you will. No need to go down with the LLL ship when there are MANY other retailers selling better quality fitness wear with unconditional money-back guarantees!

I would wear angel blue, caspian blues, oasis, ray, lolo purple, power purple, etc with the rasp/bs speeds. Lots of colors! :-) I'm getting them!!

@ anon 4:10 am - The Tender Violet/Black U-turn pullover reverses to solid black. I much prefer the clean lines and obviously sporty look of the color blocked U-turn to the overwrought look of the Run Your Heart Out Pullover that included shoulder poufs, pleats, ruffles, a blingy zipper and heathering.

As for the capcha word thingy - I sympathize but it really does deter spam postings. I took it off for awhile and got tons of robot spam.

@LLA - while on the topic of spam...any chance comment moderation will be turned off anytime soon? i know there was an issue with trolling a bit ago, but as I recall that was a couple months back. just wondering because i like reading the comments in real time rather than huge batches (:

@LLA - I would like to add my voice to Sophia's. I understand the necessity but I much prefer a real time comment feed over a moderated one. But, I'll take what I can get.
